I had heard this before but it’s sobering and interesting all at the same time. It was printed in the Sunday bulletin of the FSSP in Kansas City this past Sunday (latin-mass.org/spd/bulletins)).
When You Travel
Another sobering statistic from Bishop Finn’s pastoral letter: Blessed are the Pure in Heart:
“Half of all hotel guests order pornographic movies. These films comprise 80% of in-room entertainment revenue and 70% of total in-room revenue.”
If you stay in a hotel room, unless you are literally the first guests, you can be morally certain that there have been serious sins committed in that room. This means that you can be morally certain that there are devils lurking about that room. Yes, you read that correctly: you can be morally certain that there are devils in that room. But no worries! Take a towel and cover the television… (and leave it covered!) Then take blessed salt and drop a little pinch in each corner of the room and flick a tiny amount across the room, and then sprinkle a little holy water around.
In case you’re wondering: any priest can bless salt and the blessing placed on the salt carries a powerful exorcism that repels demons (it’s on par with holy water or a blessed Saint Benedict medal). It’s a good idea to have blessed salt, blessed olive oil (also carries a powerful exorcism), and holy water in your home at all times.
